Centuries ago, like now, there were hostels, posadas or taverns where food was served in exchange for money, as in a thermopolium in Rome (snack-bar) where we, readers of @LRB @TwitterBooks @nytimes @NewYorker @washingtonpost, would often go
After the #fall of the #Roman #Empire in these businesses food was served in shared tables and consisted of a fixed menu, according to what was already prepared. Even the nobility, like celebrities today, would frequent when traveling.
But, when did the concept and business of restaurants truly begin?
It began with Paracelsus (1493-1541), a brilliant Swiss physician who modernized medicine with rational clinical judgment and changed the way we eat in the #Western #world.

Abro hilo. Gracias a @Profeta_Baruc por la inspiración

Antaño, como ahora, había hosterías, posadas, tabernas, paradores, mesones u hostales en donde se servía comida a cambio de dinero, como el thermopolium en Roma (snack-bar).
Después de la caída del Imperio Romano, en estos negocios, la comida se servía en mesas compartidas y consistía en un menú cotidiano fijo, dependiendo en lo que se cocinaba cada día. Pero realmente, ¿cuándo comenzó el concepto (y negocio) del restaurante?
La respuesta se remonta a Paracelso (1493-1541), eminente médico suizo que modernizó la medicina con un juicio clínico racional y el modo en que comemos en el occidente.
